    Would be interesting to see if there is anything living there.

    I cant wait till they release pictures.
    Have seen many pictures from unmanned crafts that dove deep.
    There are amazing living things, & plants down there.
    That we don't even have names for.

    I'm hoping for an evolutionary link or a living fossil of some type.

    Can the Aussies take a bow ? The submersible was designed
    and built in Sydney.

    Until I read the article in the Net news, I had no idea that Cameron was that interested in Oceanography. He's done enough dives to be considered an Oceanogrpher himself.

    I didn't realize he was going down himself. I thought it was just a probe. I also forgot about the previous dive there. Kinda useless to offer an X prize after someone already made the trip.

    C'mon James; let's see the pictures!

    The title of this thread is misleading! The deepest trench is clearly Michael Moore's posterior.

    I remember years ago flying over the trench on the way to Guam. We all talked about how it was impossible to go that deep. Wrong again! lol

    Drop Mickey Moore into the trench, it'd be half filled. Hm...... where's Rosie O'donnel.....?

    I wonder if anything can be alive down that deep? Life goes deep, but ALL the way....?
